After resisting for forever, I finally succumbed to Twitter last week. It isn't quite the total time suck that I thought it would be, and it is a fun way to spend a few minutes.

I am on there as MargReads.

On the Emmy's they had a clip from one of the chat shows nominated (can't remember which), and there was a joke about YouTube, Twitter and FaceBook combining and becoming "YouTwitFace", cracked me up!

LOL, that's funny!
I was very snarky about Twitter at first, but I'm on it and enjoying it now. I find it useful to keep in touch fast with various folks, especially when my e-mail keeps going belly up! My agent's a keen twitterer though, so I have to be careful what I say! Posts such as 'Haven't done any writing today' are not wise... ;)

I'm on Twitter now too, as WritingRen. It's great for finding links to interesting writing and publishing articles.

After avoiding it for a couple of years, I decided to give it a try (it's funny to go back and read this thread and see how many have since joined!!). I'm slowly adding to my list of people to follow so if you have an account there why not post it here so we can form a big pack!

mine is: Tanzanite05 (I can't believe someone else took my name so I had to add numbers...)

Just going offline now, but I'll follow you when I get back Tanzanite. I'm at
@chadwickauthor. I love Twitter. Marg doesn't come to the board often at all now, but I often talk to her on there. It's another way of keeping in touch, and it only takes a few secs.

Welcome to Twitter, Tanzanite! I've followed you back.

I've never quite gotten the knack of tweeting, but I like to read other people's tweets and respond. I wish I were more of an extrovert. Sigh.
